(The Parting Glass dates back to the 1770s, and is usually credited as having been written by Sir Alex Boswell. It was first printed in book form in "Scots Songs". Along with Ronnie Drew, other artists have recorded this song such as Bob Dylan, The High Kings, The Pogues, and The Clancy Brothers.)

Of all the money e'er I had,
I spent it in good company.
And all the harm I've ever done,
Alas! it was to none but me.
And all I've done for want of wit
To mem'ry now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all


Oh, of all the comrades e'er I had,
They're sorry for my going away,
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had,
They'd wish me one more day to stay,
But since it falls unto my lot,
That I should rise and you should not,
I gently rise and softly call,
Good night and joy be with you all.


If I had money enough to spend,
And leisure time to sit awhile,
There is a fair maid in this town,
That sorely has my heart beguiled.
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips,
I own she has my heart in thrall,
Then fill to me the parting glass,
Good night and joy be with you all.

Album: "The Best Of" 2007
